Mobile World Congress 2014: The Wiko Wax blazes with Tegra 4i

1:41 /

French phone maker Wiko's new Wax phone is fast, light, and coming to Europe this April.

The NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor was introduced last year, and now we're finally seeing some products using the elusive CPU. I am Eric Franklin at Mobile World Congress 2014. And today, I'm taking a first look at the Wiko Wax. The Wiko Wax comes from French phone developer, Wiko, and it's one of the first phones running an NVIDIA Tegra 4i processor. It has a 4.7-inch screen. It has a 1280 x 800 resolution. The front camera is a 2-megapixel shooter and the back camera is 8 megapixels with an LED flash. There's also micro USB on the top and of course a headphone jack. The power button on the side along with a volume rocker of course. The back cover can be removed revealing the SIM card slot right here towards the top. The Tegra 4i has a 60-core GPU as opposed to the original Tegra 4's 72-core GPU. But as you can see here, the graphics are pretty impressive. Look for the Wiko Wax in April in Europe. However, there's no word on price and no word yet on when it's coming to the US. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been a first look at the Wiko Wax. Check out all our Mobile World Congress 2014 coverage at CNET.com.
